While the covid-19 health crisis has highlighted the many benefits of remote collaboration tools, it is important to note that not all of them are equal.

And in the face of the unbridled need to digitalise processes, too many companies do not pay the necessary attention to the essential selection criteria for the solutions chosen, namely content security and digital sovereignty.

Online file sharing is a daily activity for most employees. So much so that we sometimes tend to forget the importance of collaborating in a secure dedicated space.

Why should file sharing be secure ?

Because of the increasingly sophisticated types of cyber attacks such as phishing, ransomware, DDoS attacks and phishing, it is essential for businesses to protect their document transfer spaces with a secure file sharing solution.

In addition to the financial impact of loss, leakage or theft of sensitive data, the use of unsecured file sharing solutions is also damaging to a company’s reputation.

This, in turn, can lead to a loss of confidence from shareholders, employees and other stakeholders. Similarly, the risk of legal sanctions should not be overlooked.

Indeed, the problem of digital security is at the heart of the economic stakes for companies and the health crisis has only strengthened the need to secure content, and consequently secure file transfers.

Securing your collaboration and sharing spaces not only protects your content, but also simplifies internal validation processes, modification histories and backups, and the sharing and classification of documents are thus standardised.

All this in a secure personal workspace that can be accessed anywhere and at any time, also known as the digital workplace.

It is therefore essential for any company whose employees work remotely to use a secure file sharing solution that is recognised by certain qualifications and certifications.

For example, the SecNumCloud qualification awarded by the ANSSI recognises the highest level of IT security for the chosen service provider. This means that you can protect the content of your large file uploads and online file shares.

Oodrive Work : secure file synchronisation and sharing solution

Developed by the teams at oodrive, the European leader in the management of sensitive content, Oodrive Work simplifies and secures the sharing of sensitive documents while improving the productivity of users.

Our solution is qualified by the ANSSI and the data is hosted in Europe, thus benefiting from the European standards in force and therefore not being subject to any extraterritorial laws.

Faced with the challenges of security and confidentiality of content, our file sharing solution simplifies online collaboration.

Indeed, each user has a personalised workspace to store and share his or her files in complete security and with no size limit.

Oodrive Work is therefore perfectly suited to sharing large files online. Secondly, our collaborative tool optimises collaborative work in the sense that it can be used anywhere.

Whether they are in the office or on the move, people can access their files at any time and modify and share them in real time, both internally and externally.

Finally, the main advantage of Oodrive Work is the security of your content. As files are centralised in a single location, access and sharing rules are better managed. This reduces the risk of data loss or leakage.

The need to digitise companies is no longer debated. The covid-19 pandemic has considerably increased the level of equipment in organisations in this area.

Thanks to the many solutions available on the market, the productivity of many companies has been maintained and in some cases even increased. But it is only after the rush and the hasty decisions that the less obvious consequences surface.

While speed of installation was once the main criterion for any dematerialisation process, it is now clear that the quality of the solutions and the security standards they will allocate to your data and content must be taken into account from the outset.

As online file sharing is a basic requirement for any collaboration, the chosen solution must therefore meet the security standards in force.

These qualifications must take into account the multiplicity of IT risks, which range from cyber attacks to submission to extraterritorial laws, thus exposing the confidentiality of content.
